Free book for new JACL members

As an added bonus to new members, the Japanese American Citizens League is giving JACL: Paving the Road to Opportunity, a book commemorating the JACL’s first 75 years, free to new members who purchase a membership on their own and/or to new members who have gift memberships purchased on their behalf by December 31.

Tim Koide, National JACL Membership Coordinator, and Ryan Chin, new Vice President of Membership for the JACL, are trying to enhance the benefits of a JACL membership. They are also encouraging people to join the JACL. They cannot do it alone. They need the help of the JACL members to bring in more members.

This is the season for giving. As you are contemplating what to give for gifts, please consider a gift membership in the JACL for family and friends.

If you are not currently a JACL member, please join. If you have any questions about membership, you can contact Tim Koide via email at mbr@jacl.org or call the JACL Headquarters.
